Grand Re-Opening and Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony Held at Monmouth Court Campus Building

May 22, 2014 at 10:50 PM

LIVINGSTON, NJ – This week, a grand re-opening and the ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in front of the township’s Monmouth Court Campus Building.

According to Judith A. Heller, who does public relations for Livingston, “This $2.26 million project was completed under budget and on time, thanks to Township Engineer Rich Calbi.” She added, “A $62,000 Essex County Community Development grant was used to fund a portion of the cost of an elevator, which was needed to create barrier-free access.”

Construction to upgrade and update the building was a shared venture between the township and the Board of Education, which occupies the second floor of the building. The undertaking included installing an elevator to facilitate barrier-free access; renovating the second-floor classrooms and offices, including installing new stairwells, ceilings, lighting, HVAC, and flooring; and constructing new bathrooms to meet current code requirements.

A first-floor classroom was also similarly renovated, and air conditioning was added to the multi-purpose room to support summer recreation programming. During construction, the school maintained operations by using the multi-purpose room on the first floor of the building.

Monmouth Court is owned by the Township; the second floor is leased to the Board of Education; and the first floor is used for various recreation programs. 

“The students and others who utilize this building have waited patiently for these much-needed improvements,” stated Mayor Michael Rieber. “We’re all very pleased with the final results.”

Architect DiCara Rubino created a workable updated building plan, which was turned into reality by construction manager Turner Construction and contractor Paul Otto Building Company. The elevator addition and interior renovations have brought the building up to current building codes and enhanced the building’s usefulness.
